Third time’s the charm, right? They have upped Meri’s steroid amount, changed her stomach acid meds, given us stronger pain medication and, just for good measure, given us some anti-nausea medicine as well. The good news is that (so far) she hasn’t needed either of the last two scrips. Lars and I are cautiously optimistic, remembering all too well that last time we were released she went a full week before the HSP “broke through” as one of her hospital docs put it. But she does seem better. I’m noticing some puffiness in her face and feet which I assume is from the steroids and I also assume is temporary. We’ve been completely strict about her diet and making her rest frequently. We also are to visit her regular ped on Monday for a urine test and general check in. Fingers crossed!!
Once again our sincerest thanks for all the love and support during this trying time. I’ve heard from some friends I haven’t spoken to in ages, and while the impetus for contact sucks, I’m so glad to hear you and will be in touch soon, I promise!
